The No. 1 reason no one was expecting the 1,200-or-1,750 hp -- more on that later -- supercar is because few outside of the yachting world could say who, or what, a Laraki was. Abdeslam Laraki, known for his helicopter-toting, five-pool megayachts, is the creator of the Epitome, and -- get ready for another surprise -- not a newcomer to the automobile industry.
Laraki Automobiles operated in Morocco from 1999 to 2008 and brought to the world the quickly forgotten Laraki Fulgura and Laraki Borak.
The Epitome might not fade from memory quite as easily. If the very particular carbon fiber body pegged on to an aluminum chassis isn't enough to keep your attention, the car's 7.0 liter Chevrolet engine with a nifty variable horsepower trick will definitely do it.
On regular gasoline, the monster Chevy will deliver a Veyron-rivaling 1,100 hp. On 110 octane, it will pump out a mind-blowing 1,750 hp. No word yet on the car's weight, but unless the seats and tires are made of lead, the power to weight ratio should be impressive.
To save you the trouble of finishing up the tank of regular before filling up with jet fuel, Laraki has fitted two gas tanks in the Epitome. At the flick of a switch, your purebred racehorse will go full on Pegasus.
Of course the car is only a concept and it takes a special kind to buy a $2 million car from a newcomer marque. Then again, an Epitome would look cute parked on the dock next to a 535 ft. Laraki superyacht.
